Interviews with: Rep. Mike Gallagher, Rep. Adam Schiff, Sen. Pat Toomey
State of the Union
Dec 18, 2022

First, Jake asks the incoming chairman of the new House Select Committee on China Rep. Mike Gallagher about his bill to completely ban TikTok in the US and what information China could be collecting from users of the popular app. 

And, with the House January 6th Committee expected to recommend three criminal charges against Donald Trump over his role in the attack on the Capitol, Jake asks committee member Rep. Adam Schiff whether there is sufficient evidence to prosecute and convict Trump.

Plus, retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey reflects on his political career and whether he thinks Trump’s influence on the Republican Party is waning.

And, the panel discusses the January 6 Committee’s impact, as well as the expected influx of migrants at the U.S-Mexico border this week. 

Finally, Jake remembers the life and legacy of his father-in-law, who passed away last week.
